First get the Utilities`Notation` package. In[1]:= <<Utilities`Notation` Then depress Symbolize[] on the displayed Notation Palette. Now (Symbolize[]) should be in a cell in your notebook. Click on the dark square (properly none as \[SelectionPlaceholder]) inside the brackets of Symbolize[]. Now type x (CTRL,&) \[DoubleDot] Evaluate this cell and (x double dot) should be a symbol. Note: By (CTRL,&)I mean to depress "CTRL" and "&" at the same time. (See the Mathematica Book, section 3.10.2, page 909.) You should end up with the cell represented by the code below. (******* CODE **************) \!\(\* RowBox[{"Symbolize", "[", TagBox[\(x\&\[DoubleDot]\), NotationBoxTag, Editable->True], "]"}]\) (******* CODE **************) ______________________________ > > Similarly I would like to define a variable defined as x with the > subscript 0a, however Mathematica will treats the subscript as a > seperate 0*a subexpression, rather than an intrinsic part of the > variable definition. > > This may not be possible without using a String for "0a".
